The Buffalo Bills draft class is now complete, with the team using the 239th overall pick on Pittsburgh cornerback Dane Jackson. The 6’0” 190-lb redshirt senior will aim to stick on Buffalo’s roster among a mix of players including Josh Norman, Levi Wallace, Taron Johnson, Siran Neal, and (of course) Tre’Davious White.
Jackson played four seasons at Pitt after redshirting his freshman year, starting 41 games. In his past two seasons, Jackson collected 90 tackles (seven for a loss), four forced fumbles, an interception, and 26 passes defended. A competitive, feisty cornerback who sticks tightly to his opponents, Jackson often puts himself in a position to knock the ball away. Of course, it’s a double-edged sword that could lead to penalties, especially against more athletic professional players. Jackson measured in as a moderate athlete for a corner, with a 4.57 40-yard dash, a 35” vertical, a 10’2” broad jump, and a 7.07 three-cone drill.
Jackson was a second-team All-ACC selection and later selected to the Senior Bowl.
With that, the full Buffalo Bills draft class is complete:
- A.J. Epenesa DE Iowa
- Zack Moss RB Utah
- Gabriel Davis WR UCF
- Jake Fromm QB Georgia
- Tyler Bass K Georgia Southern
- Isaiah Hodgins WR Oregon State
- Dane Jackson CB Pittsburgh
